Maintain a Healthy Diet:
A healthy diet is the most effective way of cultivating healthy hair. Protein, vitamins, iron,
zinc and omega-3 fatty acids found in given foods are vital for hair health.
Hair cells for the most part are made of protein and so to keep your hair healthy, you should
include 45 grams of proteins in your daily diet. Some of the best sources include, poultry,
fish, lean meat, eggs, beans, lentils and dairy products that are low-fat. If your diet consists
of inadequate protein, your hair becomes brittle, weak, loses color, and you may even lose
the hair itself.
Hair loss can also be triggered by zinc deficiency. To increase your zinc intake, you should
incorporate nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans, and Brazil nuts) to your diet. You
should also consume vegetables, leafy green salads, fruits, and clean water in abundance.
Including adequate omega-3 fatty acids in your diet can bolster your scalp healthy by
stimulating sebaceous glands as well as hair follicles. The best source of omega-3 is cold-
water fish like sardines, herring, and salmon. You can also find it in flax seed, cottage
cheese, salad, yogurt, and cereal.
Shampoo and Condition Your Hair
To keep your hair and scalp healthy, it’s vital that you cleanse it with shampoo. Shampooing
however removes some of the natural moisturizing oils from your hair and leaves it dry. So
you should revitalize your locks with a conditioner after shampooing. As you apply the
conditioner, focus on the roots and the ends of your hair.
However, you should keep this in mind when it comes to shampooing and conditioning your
hair. For one, know thy hair. How often you shampoo should be hinged on your hair texture
and type, the frequency in which you use certain hair products, and your activity level. For
instance, if hair is the dry type, you should shampoo it less frequently, maybe once in two
weeks. Conversely, if your hair is overly oily, you may be forced to shampoo it daily.
Besides, you should use the right shampoo based on your hair type – dry, normal, oily – and
any other hair health issues like dandruff. Avoid shampoos that contain hash ingredients like
sodium lauryl sulfate, and ammonium lauryl sulfate. Remember cost doesn’t necessarily
correlate with quality.
When it comes to conditioning, you can either go for a shampoo-conditioner combo, or a
separate conditioner. Spread the conditioner evenly in your hair and then rinse it out after
about three minutes. You don’t need to condition your hair after every hair wash. You can
find out what’s ideal for you through experimentation.
Many people debase their hair health by shampooing incorrectly or over-shampooing.
Experts recommend that you shouldn’t use very cold or very hot water to wash your hair.
And, in a day, you shouldn’t wash more than once.
